Keep Calm and Carry On? Against the Riots - Be the Change
After the devastation of the 2011 riots we saw hope break despondency and the communities of ‘broken Britain’ rally together to show courage and solidarity in the face of adversity. As quickly as social media was attributed to fueling the riots, so was it quick to facilitate the rebuild - as #riotcleanup took to the trending topics, the broomstick armies took to the streets.
We’ve visually juxtaposed the positive and negative data surrounding the riots, below, to demonstrate the effort the UK is putting in to addressing the fall-out from the devastation that took too many homes, businesses, and lives.
And, we’re hoping, as we continue to monitor the data, we’ll be able to create a second infographic that demonstrates how the message of positivity has spread, and how communities continue to stand together. Whether you’re helping Siva, DeLooting London, rebuilding Reeves or showing solidarity within your own community, there’s a multitude of ways you can help.
Against the riots, be the change.
We’ve created a Twibbon, which you can add to your avatar to show your support for the campaign.
